I wish I were more erudite as to be able to describe what Im seeing here- this is incredible. If only our clothes makers went by this book (about all of them USED to, in olden days.. if not this one, a book like it) can you imagine wearing outfits cut to precision like this? The file itself is simply perfect and like the other review, high resolution & scanned wonderfully (THANK you... ) what a blessed relief from the miserable "google books" trash- don't let google get hold of files like this- they'll destroy them.

I certainly hope to see more of WDF Vincent's works scanned in and OCRed as this one is! It's a veritable treasure trove of information never before released, afaik, to the public, in a high-resolution, professional format, in a copy that looks very well preserved. From what it looks like this is at least the 1898 edition, judging by the illustrations and layouts. Here's hoping that the men's editions are also made available. The copies that have existed for years on Costumer's Manifesto have been helpful but alas have always been in low resolution, scanned in by flatbed scanners and are also omitting several pages.
